Learn about the processes and techniques Olivier uses to document stories on location and pick up tips which you can use to illustrate your own stories of migration.

Take part in the question-and-answer-session where you can ask Olivier about his work, ask how you can improve on your own illustration practice and to explore ways to tell your own stories using drawing and text.
